[AMI secret agents] have been to Russia and seen the tremendous investment in new infrastructure going on there. A briefing on this will be given at the conference (in a closed session).

[AMI secret agents] have been to China and been monitoring developments there remotely. How is the huge amount of infrastructure being built both domestically and internationally – under the “One Belt, One Road” strategy – being funded? A briefing on this will be given at the conference (in a closed session).

AMI’s colleagues in Switzerland, MoMo (Modernising Money), will give us an update on their citizens’ initiated referendum, the Vollgeld (translation is “full money”)-Initiative to transform the Swiss money system along similar lines to what AMI proposes for the U.S. (the NEED Act). You can read more about the Vollgeld-Initiative (in English) here.

AMI’s colleagues in the Netherlands, Ons Geld (translation is “Our Money”), will give us an update on their virtual Euro proposal to deleverage the EU economy without a “credit crunch” – and thus avoiding a “balance sheet recession” – essentially along similar lines to what AMI proposes for in the U.S. (the NEED Act). Ons Geld initiated a successful citizens’ initiative supported by over 100,000 Dutch citizens, resulting in the Scientific Council for Government Policy (a Dutch Government agency) being tasked to present a report on the topic later this year. More recently, two Dutch MPs tabled questions to the Finance Minister on the potential of the “virtual euro” and a recent report adopted by the European Parliament on Fintech also encourages experiments with digital cash. You can read more about the Ons Geld proposal (in English) here.
